Charles,

On the Chronology page, the dates on the chronology image are reversed in two or three cases.

I believe 4000 BC, 3600 BC and the 20th dynasty numbers are reversed (at least on my computer). It was suggested that since you uploaded the image (if I understand the history correctly) you might have the original image and could correct it and upload the corrected image.

Links in templates

Charles,

I was copyediting this article you wrote over a year ago that I noticed didn't make use of the {{to quote}} template, which I thought odd because it was after you started using those templates. So I changed it to use the template, only to find that it didn't work, which was probably also why you didn't use it. The problem was a couple of equals signs (=) in an external link. I tried a few ways of working around this problem, but not having any luck, I resorted to that old adage, "if all else fails, try reading the instructions" and read the information on WikiMedia about templates. This very problem was mentioned. It has nothing to do with the equals signs being in the links, but in the parameter of the template (although if it wasn't in a link there are other ways around the problem). The solution is to explicitly specify the "name" of the parameter. Parameters in templates can be named so that you can enter the data in any order (e.g. name=Joe blow|address=23 Station Street| etc.). The problem was that the equals signs were being treated as parameter name/text delimiters. When parameters are not named (as in this template), they have default names of "1", "2", "3", and so on. So by writing the template (only when necessary) as {{to quote|1=this is the text of the quote}}, the text of the quote—including links—can then contain equals signs.

I thought that you might find this information useful.

By the way, have you read this? You may want to add your thoughts.

ICR Links

Charles,

I've changed some "out of date" links to ICR articles (and I think someone else did too), but one you put in the other day was "out of date" when you put it in! I don't know if you copied it from somewhere else or whether you have some other route to get to the articles. If the latter, you need to be aware that it doesn't work for everyone. You put http://www.icr.org/pubs/imp/imp-102.htm and I replaced it with http://www.icr.org/index.php?module=articles&action=view&ID=184.

Also, I don't know if you looked at the talk page linked in my previous message, but if you did, I've since added a couple of proposals that you may wish to comment on.

GIFs

Charles,

FYI - GIF file formats dont appear to work very well on the wiki system. I'm not sure why, but every now and then, they just seem to frag-out and a message appears that says they are corrupted.

It appears that the PNG file format is recommended for the Wiki applications. Almost all wikis seem to use that type universally, and I have started saving all custom graphics as PNGs.

All of the graphic editors support it, even Paint...

Admin privileges + Deleting images

I noted that your admin privileges had not been transferred to the Pool when we set it up, so I took care of that.

FYI - Currently the "Unused files" feature doesnt work properly. The tech guys cant figure out how to configure it so that it recognizes that the images are used on the English CreationWiki. So, all of the uploaded images are appearing on the Unused files list. Its therefore important to delete any that you replace with a different filename or know you will not use. --Mr. Ashcraft 18:20, 23 December 2006 (EST)

(Talk.Origins) Claim: Phylogenetic analyses are inconsistent

Hi Mr. Charles,

I just recieved your CreationTalk e-mail about the new claims you finished. They all look great to me, and I know you take a lot of time on those! But I did notice one typo on (Talk.Origins) Phylogenetic analyses are inconsistent. It says about halfway down, "While theoretically possible, Wells does not do this, yes he site a few examples, but they are intended only *inllusration*." I wasn't sure what you meant, so I figured I'd leave to you to fix. Take care. --Amanda 7:15, 07 February 2007 (EST)

Ossuary edit

Hi, I just looked at the log and realized you just created the "Lost Tomb of Jesus" page today. I'm sorry if I made any edits too soon and interferred with your work. You can remove them if you like.

--Davelr 01:29, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Hi, there. I just put in some internal links--did you know that I wrote a page on television, for example? I did it for just this sort of reason: TV is a common vehicle for pushing evolutionistic and anticreation claims. (We also have articles on Paul and the definition of an Apostle.) I didn't go very deep with these.

I also italicized the titles of the TV project and the book.

Hope I did right.--Temlakos 10:04, 19 March 2007 (EDT)

File uploads

Charles,

I assume you are intentionally uploading files to the English site for some reason rather than to the Pool. Just curious why.

If you are doing so accidentally, please describe how you end up at the English upload page.

--Mr. Ashcraft - (talk) 23:19, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

Please only upload files to the Pool - so they are available to the nonenglish sites also. If files uploaded to the Pool did not show up on your page, it was likely due to a filename discrepancy. You may search or view recently uploaded files by using the "Latest files" link on the left menu.

I found the following images uploaded to the Pool by you 4/19, but nothing more recent.

Crct.PNG Addt.PNG Addct.PNG

You must also provide a more valid copyright status statement when uploading images. If they are not copyrighted you must state why - as all such images are immediately copyrighted by US law unless explicitly released into the public domain. We recommend stating the following - "I, the author of the work, hereby release this image into the public domain".

Math

Charles,

We implemented the Math extension on the CreationWiki - and wanted to make sure you knew the tool was now available - since you've extensively used forumlas in the past.

Catastrophic plate tectonics

Charles,

The Catastrophic plate tectonics page is currently under construction. Note the banner at the top says Please do not edit the article until this banner is removed. Once the banner is removed, open editing may resume. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Fragged image

Charles - I noticed the following image is fragged. Not sure if you still have the original, but maybe you can re-upload it as a PNG...

Duplicate links

You recently added links to two nearly-identical pages on separate sites to the bottom of Theory of evolution. Any reason why just one wouldn't do? And since they're not about the article's subject, per se, it seems to me that it should either be on another page or used as a reference. Please let me know if I missed some obvious reason for them to be there. Thank you. ~ "Webster" Otley (talk) 19:01, 18 November 2011 (PST)
